PRODUCT FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
Overall, the hardware specs are pretty impressive for a home/SOHO NAS, which includes a 1.2 GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. All of that hardware is packed into a compact unit that it won't take up a lot of room on your desk. You can use a pair of standard 3.5” SATA hard drives or if you want to use a pair of 2.5” SATA drives, the TS-219P will accept those too. Of course, hot-swapping is supported as well.
If you've ever purchased a QNAP product, then you already know how informative their packaging is. Many of the features are listed out right on the box to give you a good idea of everything that you're getting. More importantly though, the contents inside are packaged securely so they will arrive at your home or office safely.
A price tag of around $400 US will buy you everything needed to get up and running. In addition to the NAS, you get a power adapter and cord, Ethernet cable, quick start guide, setup CD, and all necessary screws and keys. The quick start guide will help you begin setup and a more detailed PDF manual is available on the CD as well as on QNAP's website.
No hard drives are included, so you'll have to provide them yourself.
